For a morning wake-up call, one of the important Iran-related "must read" news items that you might have missed this past weekend is the Asharq Alawsat article, "Iran's Secret Plan if Attacked by US Codenamed "Judgement Day""
Eight fundamentalist Islamist organizations have received large sums of money in the last month from the Iranian intelligence services, as part of a project to strike U.S military and economic installations across the Middle East.This alarming report includes information about the carrying out of suicide operations targeting US and British interests in the region, as well as their Arab and Muslim allies - in a "great jihad". Plans even call for extremists to seek to maximize civilian casualties by exploding germ and chemical bombs as well as dirty nuclear bombs across western and Arab cities.
The plan, which also includes the carrying out of suicide operations targeting US and British interests in the region, as well as their Arab and Muslim allies, in case Iran is attacked, was drawn up by a number of experts guerilla warfare and terrorist operations, and was revealed by a senior source in the Iranian armed forces' joint chief of staff headed by the veterinary doctor Hassan Firouzabadi,
The source added that the forces of the Revolutionary Guards' al Quds Brigades, under Brigadier General Qassim Suleimani is responsible for coordinating and providing logistical support for the groups taking part in the execution of the plan, codenamed al Qiyamah the Islamic word for "Judgment Day".
"Most of Iran's visitors in the last four months, including the leaders of revolutionary groups in Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon, as well as the heads of Hezbollah cells in the Persian Gulf and Europe and North America were asked, when they met with the Iranian intelligence minister Gholamhossein Mohseni Ezhei and his aides: are you ready to defend the Islamic revolution and vilayat e faqih? If you agree to take part in the great jihad, what would you need to be ready for the great fight?
If you've had any doubts about the need to deny Iran continued access to nuclear technology now, rather than wait until their capabilities for making war increases, you need to read this frightening account of Iran's plans for making war on the West. To argue that such plans only appy to Iran's defense and in response to attack, is like watching a gigantic snowball rolling downhill and thinking it's going to melt before it hits the village below. Iran's Islamist leadership is as whacky as their theology, and they actually believe that the "final jihad" is not only inevitable, but it is their destiny.
Regardless of our best intentions, war with Iran is inevitable, it's only a matter of whether it's on our terms or theirs.
